Child suspended for having a flashlight in school! This needs to be removed from his record, including all grades affected by this suspension!

This child never had any intentions of harming anyone. He took a flashlight to school because it's dark when he gets on the bus! What does suspending this child teach other students? This would go on his permanent record, causing further issues as he tries to get into college. This action also causes concern in school regarding his reputation. Just because there was a temporary disruption in school, doesn't mean someone should be punished. Please sign this petition so we can help this child clear his record. We understand and thank our school system for keeping our children safe. Suspending a child for a flashlight has no benefits, except this child will now stand in the dark while he waits for the bus. Again, please sign and share!
